Very little in this area of Houston is free and if it is you... More

I had pre-purchased two nights at this hotel for a wedding. When we got there (very late) we were ignored, then treated rudely by the girl at the front desk. She then told us that they only had a room with a king bed. It was myself, my husband and my two kids - ages 10 and 13. No way... More

Great all-around place to stay. Clean, friendly staff and located nears lots shopping, restaurants etc. Extremely good bang for you buck. I would definitely stay again. Great "grad and go" food and a cool bar to relaxing in.

I stayed here back-to-back within the week due to the convenience of its location. Rooms were OK if you're into the minimalist motif, but for me it was just what the wallet needed. Great price, centrally located and a bar that was great. Ask for Linda.....really great bartender and made the stay fun. Downside, besides the traffic on day one.....A/C... More

Found a great hotel for my business trips to Houston. The Aloft is contemporary, with great service options. 24-hour Grab-n-go snack area in the lobby is perfect for a busy traveler; indoor & outdoor bar/lounge area, clean gym and indoor pool. Super easy location, parking, and friendly staff. did I mention, great value? I have 3 more trips to Houston... More

This is my first trip to an Aloft hotel. It has some of the markings of a W, but is much more Spartan. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but don't confuse this with any of the great W hotels around the country. The furniture is a fairly high grade laminate. The bed is W comfortable, but the street... More

I really liked this hotel, it's very cute & modern. It's in the heart of the Houston, Galleria area, so it's easy to walk to the mall, bars, Resteraunt, etc.. The best part of it, is that it is dog friendly.

The hotel garage elevators didn't always work, neither did the gate going in and out of hotel. The elevators, when they were working wreaked of a horrid smell. This was by far the worse part of my stay. The hotel itself was trendy, older and could use some upgrades. For $249/night, I thought the hotel would be a little nicer.... More

Appealing to on-the-go and in-the-know travelers, the Aloft rooms at Aloft Houston by the Galleria are equally carefree and bold. Nine-foot ceilings and extra-large windows create a bright, airy environment full of natural light. You’ll face the windows—not the walls—as you drift to sleep in our ultra-comfortable platform bed topped with plush bedding. Choose a 285-square-foot king room for one big bed, or grab a little more breathing room in the 315-square-foot rooms with two queen beds. Business or pleasure, work or play, each loft-like space keeps you connected. Your always-available in-room “office” includes an ergonomic workspace, plus complimentary wired and wireless High Speed Internet Access. You have your own entertainment center thanks to plug & play, our one-stop connectivity station. Leave your chargers at home: it juices up all your electronics—laptop, cell phone, MP3 player, and more—and connects them to a wall-mounted 42” flat-screen TV. A flip of the switch gives you high-def screening of your favorite flicks (or tomorrow’s presentation). In the sleek stylish bathroom, details are designed to stimulate your senses. Natural light illuminates the walk-in shower through a full-length frosted glass panel, which faces the guest room for a free flow of light with plenty of privacy.
